Thanks to everyone for the daily feature and for front page!

Hello everybody! The full title of this film is actually "And the Birds Flew from the Trees", and I just finished it for my finals at the School of the Art Insitute of Chicago where I am in my second year. The file size is incredibly large, but this movie is an odd mix of flash and scanned drawings. I hope people will be patient enough for the download!

A very big thank you to Tom for letting this movie be on Newgrounds, despite the size.

I hope everyone enjoys it!

Good, but could use a final touch.

Nice animation, as far as storytelling is concerned it's spot on. Both individual animation frames and the shots are nicely timed to communicate what's needed. The halts you used between animation do work for me, but all that white noise around your characters really pulls me out of the story. Instead of emphatizing the characters' actions it just makes the viewer painfully aware which frames are animated and which aren't... I would suggest to either use moving halts instead of static halts (so that the noise is constantly changing), or to remove the noise altogether. Shouldn't be too much work to clean your scans up properly... But apart from that it's great! It's rare to see traditional frame-by-frame scans in a flash movie. Looking forward to seeing more of your work :)

Amazing effort

This was some good, cohesive storytelling here. I'm sure it took you forever to draw all of this -- it paid off. You got your points across eloquently, the only music sound worked for this piece, and overall it was a very enjoyable flash. Amazing work, I look forward to seeing more of your stuff.

this animation reminds me of some of the old school animation that came out of quebec in the 80's, it has true emotion and displays's unique style, that only the animator can achieve. the music was excellent as well it had a great rythym that went along with the animation, and was as much as an experience for the ears as the animation was for the eyes.

Nice artwork man you're very talented. Like others said, this flash is very powerful, and I agree. The whole mood for the flash is very peaceful, and I liked that.

Again, great work on the flash. Thanks for the great submission.

Great Flash

I loved you're flash. It was strange but easy to follow. The Style of animation was awesome. And like many great flashes on the NG, short and sweet.

And to gangstera, you're computer must just suck. Grow a pair, buy a new computer, and quit you're indignant whining you shit-filled retard. To think you actually went into a detailed review about how much you're own computer sucks. For me the flash loaded withing seconds, and my computer isn't even that fast.
